As the daughter of a Georgia minister, Lizz Wright grew up singing gospel music. She weaves that call-and-response style into her latest album, “Freedom and Surrender.” The album touches on music’s healing role in Wright’s journey through divorce and a nearfatal car accident. The soul and jazz singer with the smoky voice has been likened to Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman.
